Texas Instrument Dot Matrix Printer Driver for TI Omni 800/Model 885

Hello - I am the owner of a Travel Agency in Hawaii - Sun Tours and Travel - since 1987.   PART. NO. 2551969-001

 We have 4 - TI OMNI 800 / model 885 ATB PRINTER  - DOT MATRIX printers we have been using for invoicing since 1987.   Yes, still works after 35 years!  Amadeus has been our airline / agency support DRS since the beginning with the use of their PRO PRINTER platform which is soon coming to an end - JUNE 2022.   We have more than 6000  SUNTOURS 2-part pre-printed tractor feed invoices that will go to the garbage / landfill. They upgraded our PC system and accidentally removed the printer driver software on DEC 8 from our Windows 10 and installed their SAPE (Stand Alone Printer Emulator) program. We only use 1 TI printer as it works and has never failed and the other 3 are new and nearly never used for  20+ years. One still in the box shipped from Texas.  The Amadeus tech person would reload the TI printer back to our PC to make us of the 6000 invoices but we are lacking the PRINTER DRIVER. Is this something we can get from TI perhaps on a disc?    Or download it from the internet?  

  • Hello Nancy, 

      Wow!  What a testament, and it's not the printer that failed after 35 years, it's the software!  Thanks very much for sharing this, and for using E2E. 

    Unfortunately, that division was divested many, many years ago, and so far, I have not been successful in locating a group here at TI that might have information about that driver. 

    I will continue to pursue other avenues to try and locate the driver, it may take a few days.  I'll get back to you by next Monday, at least give an update.

    At your service,

    ~Leonard
